Over 250 techs attend first REPXPERT ‘tea-break training’ session of 2021

Popular online training programme continues after January’s first topic attracted numbers beyond expectations

Picking up where it left off in 2020, Schaeffler’s REPXPERT technical training team began 2021 with its latest online training module, entitled ‘What’s Hot in Cooling’.

Following the now tried and tested format of a short presentation followed by a Q&A session, attendees were first introduced to the technical team before a comprehensive overview of water pump and coolant technology.

This was followed by plenty of best practice advice, including the essential tools needed when carrying out cooling system checks or repairs.

The lively Q&As to close were enjoyed by the 200 plus attendees that took part across the three sessions.

Schaeffler technical manager and REPXPERT, Alistair Mason said: “It was obvious from when we touched on the subject during the first event in December, that cooling was an area that was going to prove popular but the overall numbers exceeded even our expectations.

“It takes a great deal of time and effort by the REPXPERT team to pull these sessions together, from those presenting and those researching the subjects, as well as our digital team that ensures attendees are invited and can access via Zoom.

“It was great to see the appetite for high quality training is as strong as ever and that the feedback we receive is so positive.”

The next cooling related module is ‘Switch on the Heat’, which is to be held on Tuesday 9 February at 12:30 and Wednesday 10 February at 12:30 and 18:30, followed by module three ‘Managing the Heat’, on Tuesday 16 March at 12:30 and Wednesday 17 March at 12:30 and 18:30.

Supplementing the cooling programme, the REPXPERT team is also addressing the vital subject of clutch technology, with a focus on dual mass flywheels, with three modules also running in January, February and March respectively.

Module one ‘Movin’ with the Times’, will take place on Tuesday 26 January at 12:30 and Wednesday 27 at 12:30 and 18:30, module two ‘Customer Challenges’ on Tuesday 23 February and Wednesday 24 at 12:30 and 18:30 and finally, module three ‘Technology on the Horizon’ on Tuesday 30 March at 12:30 and Wednesday 31 at 12:30 & 18:30.

Information on all future tea-break training sessions will appear first on the REPXPERT website.
